Our 7-Step Water Damage Restoration Process for Des Plaines Residents

1. Water Damage Assessment

We arrive at your door in fully equipped service vans and immediately inspect your home or business. Our technicians assess the extent of water damage to interiors and contents, including furnishings and personal belongings.

2. Restoration Action Plan

We quickly determine which problems need to be taken care of right away. Based on our assessment, we put together an action plan and explain it to you in detail.

From cleanup and mitigation to final restoration, you know what to expect.

3. Immediate Water Removalwater-damage-repair-des-plaines-team

Using powerful truck-mounted extraction systems, we remove water from all affected areas, including basements and crawlspaces. Our teams address residual water with highly specialized vacuuming equipment.

4. Cleanup and Mitigation

During the initial cleanup and mitigation phase, we identify materials that can’t be repaired or replaced, such as water-damaged drywall and ruined carpeting.

We begin the tear-out and disposal process, clearing the way for remediation and restoration.

5. Deep Structural Drying

Our deep structural drying techniques stop secondary water damages, such as wood rot. Interior humidity levels are returned to normal through the use of centrifugal air movers, industrial-grade axial fans and desiccant dehumidifiers.

6. Water Damage Remediation

Next, we remediate your property’s water damage by scrubbing, sanitizing and deodorizing all affected surfaces. Our technicians also clean and restore salvageable belongings and contents in residential and commercial settings.

7. Detailed Interior Restoration

Finally, we replace water-damaged drywall, ceilings and flooring. Everything is done with a professional focus on the details, from window casings and paneling to baseboards.

When we’re finished, your home or business is completely restored to its pre-loss condition.

UPDATEI had ServiceMaster out again after the July 2, 2023 sewer back ups in the city. The crew came back out and quickly dried and cleaned/disinfected my basement and returned twice to ensure everything was completed to my satisfaction. Everyone was a complete professional and they explain every step of the way, from the office staff to the cleaning crew and follow up representatives the sent. I highly recommend them.Neil and the crew really know there job. They are professional, fast, reliable, courteous, and very sympathetic. They work well with the insurance company which helps immensely when dealing with an emergency. Highly recommended!!!

Fernando and his team "hand held" my situation from the moment I called him to report the incident. Fernando was EXTREMELY helpful in guiding me with what to discard, how to value the lost items, how to present the same to my insurance adjustor and sharing his own personal experience with the process. Every time I contacted him with questions during the process he again was informative, patient and continued to provide guidance. On the day my personal property was delivered his staff was uber professional (laid contractor paper on the new floors, asked for placement of furniture, etc. ) and even removed an old wine refrigerator from the rental unit where I was residing). I will share my positive review with my insurance agent and the adjuster. In todays "new" world of difficulty with expected customer service (and lack thereof) Fernando and his team were a pleasant surprise. I do hope I never have to use his services again (lol) however if I do I know I will be satisfied.

I have a rental property in Lake Forest and the renters were vacationing last week. The temperatures dropped and warmed up and when they got back the house was flooded due to a pipe that burst in the ceiling. I immediately called ServiceMaster by Zaba in Chicago and they came out within the day to clean up the mess and dry everything out. I definitely would recommend them to anyone who's experiencing water damage in their homes!

Had a small kitchen fire. Luckily I was able to extinguish it myself but it left a big mess in my kitchen and entire apartment. ServiceMaster cleaned it out and within 48 hours they got rid of the soot/smoke smell and had cleaned the entire apartment from soot residue. Highly recommend them.

Service master provided me with excellent customer service. They responded quickly to my water issues and answered all my questions and concerns in a professional manner. I never experienced this type of home issue before and they were able to fix my water problems without adding additional stress. I would definitely recommend this company to any person experiencing water damage in their home. In today’s day it is very difficult to find a trustworthy and reliable company that can do a good job. Service Master is definitely the company to call in a water home emergency. I would definitely use them again for any future restoration issues.
